Welcome and go with kumho ecsta 712's theyre relitively inexpensive, look good and offer good street traction and good wear. If yer gonna race at all go with Falken Azenis a great lookin tire and kickin ass in auto cross. As far as size go with a 215 45.

In my opinion, avoid the rice tires and take a cue from the F1 boys (the racing the Celica was derived from).

Bridgestone Potenzas all the way.

Yokohama Parada Spec 2 good for dry. Pirelli P series good all around. Both aren't noisy tires.

Nitto, Toyo, Falken, Bridgestones are good too

Kuhmo & Visa

been through all of these models depends on wheel size and preference most of all.

I just bought Nittos last month and love them. The manager where I bought them said they will outlast the Yokohama Parada Spec 2.

Hanook tred pattern looks like it would do very well in wet conditions, what do you guys think?

I just bought a set of the Nitto Neo Gens from myself. grin I purchased 205/45-16 for front. I will let you all know how they perform when i am "testing" my newly lowered gear ratio. Remember street racing is bad. happywink

here's one that hasn't been listed yet-

Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's are bar-none the best summer tires I've ever bought and are currently on my car.

My previous cars have run on Pirelli P-Zero's, Michelin Pilot Sports, Toyo Proxes, and Bridgestone Potenzas. Goodyear was always my last choice of tire, but these new Eagle's have totally turned my opinion around. Car stays planted in the turns, noise is minimal, treadlife is awesome (10k on mine so far), rain driving is no problem, and the price is fair...you cannot go wrong with these tires.
